Founded in 1993, Organization Studies Research Network comes together around a common concern for, and a shared interest to explore, new possibilities in knowledge, culture and change management, within the broader context of the nature and future of organizations and their impact on modern society.
2020 Special Focus: Beautifully Organized
This conference theme invites presenters to consider the open frontiers and hard boundaries of pursuing beautiful processes and outcomes in organization studies. How might we legitimately engage the concept of ‘beauty' in our efforts to advance theory, research, and practice related to organizations and organizing? When might beauty be justifiably elevated above logic in our work? When might beauty advance the logic of our work? When might the quest for beauty in our work be misguided?
Video: Sydney Harbour Knowledge Cafe
On 25th October 2007 I ran a Knowledge Cafe in Sydney. It was hosted by Annalie Killian of AMP on the 25th Floor of their building overlooking Sydney Harbour.
The Cafe was on the theme "What will be the impact of Social Tools within Organizations?" which I co-facilitated with Helen Paige who is regional director of the Gurteen Knowledge Community in Adelaide. About 70 people attended. It was a great evening.
